On Saturday 11th April 2015 we finally tied the knot after months of planning and organising every minute detail. One of these details, in fact one of the most important details, is deciding which photographer to use to capture your special day. Make a mistake here, and given the plethora of photographers available its pretty easy to do given that most of us are not in the habit of hiring professional photographers every day, and it will haunt you forever. I mean its not like you can just call for a do-over, if the photos are no good, you’re stuck with them. After much deliberation and a game of close our eyes and point, we settled on Martin Bartnicki and thankfully we hit the jackpot on the first go.
At all times during the day Martin and his assistant (we never did get his name!) were professional, friendly, approachable and courteous, and not once were they ever in the way, even if the angle of some of the photos thy took made it look as if they must have been! Both before and after the big day any issues we raised were responded to promptly and dealt with to our complete satisfaction.
The photos taken were of an extremely high quality, all shots we requested were taken, and they took photos we wouldn’t have thought to request. The photos taken were available online much quicker than expected and again all enquiries regarding the photos were answered promptly and to our satisfaction.
Somebody once told me that the difference between a professional and an amateur photographer is that the pro gets paid for his photos while the amateur does not. In truth there is much more to it than that and Martin and his team encompass all of the qualities you simply expect a Professional to have, and they quite literally went above and beyond any expectations we had and genuinely contributed to how much we enjoyed our day. By the time they left in the evening we felt as if we had made new friends, though they maintained their professionalism throughout.
We would absolutely recommend Martin and his team with absolutely no hesitation or reservations whatsoever, in our opinion he is an exceptional photographer, and a genuinely likeable person who has set the bar for other photographers extremely high.
Many Thanks to Martin and his Assistant for not only capturing our special day but for being a very welcome part of our celebration.
All the best for the future.
